... my black Rive Gauche is finally here. Yay!!! I am at work now but just cant contain my joy as it has taken one whole month from time of order to reach me. It has been a long process as I'm in Singapore i.e. after placing the order with NM, it took a while for credit card clearance due to foreign bank issuer (resulting in numerous phone calls and online chats) then it was consolidating ground shipment at forwarder (NM dont ship internationally) etc etc etc. Wont bore you with the details. Suffice to say Im thrilled to bits its finally here. And thanks to a poster here who provided the NM link, I managed to grab the last RG which was reduced from $1,795 to $1,495. And it was subsequently marked down further to $1,196. A good buy considering it retails for around $2,100 plus here in YSL Singapore. I can already tell Im gonna love it to pieces had a quick ogle upon liberating it from the box. And I keep getting whiffs of the leather smell wafting from under my desk now. Darn Im at work else I would be dancing around with joy. Ill post pictures later when I get home. Thanks for letting me share!
